Democratic coup

"The Oligarch Makes a Comeback in America’s ‘Strategic Ally’ Ukraine" (Lazare) (as bad as he may be as a person, Kolomoisky seems to understand the geopolitics very well):
"This is worth keeping in mind as one impeachment witness after another pillories Donald Trump for supposedly undermining the Ukraine. Based on Kolomoisky’s remarks to the Times, it’s not Trump who’s responsible for the Ukrainian disaster, but decades of US policy. By pumping in $5 billion to “insure a secure and prosperous and democratic Ukraine,” as former State Department boss Victoria (“Fuck the EU”) Nuland put it, the US triggered a cascade of events that were little short of catastrophic. It encouraged the Nazi-spearheaded 2014 Euromaidan coup, which took a weak state and rendered it even weaker by triggered a parallel revolt in the Russian-speaking east. It tossed out a corrupt pro-Russian president named Viktor Yanukovych and brought in the pro-American president Petro Poroshenko, who may have been even worse. Now it has brought in Zelensky, a nice guy who may well prove to be the most disastrous of all because he seems to be little more than a stand-in for an oligarch so outrageous that he puts all other oligarchs to shame."
"David Stockman Exposes The Ukrainian Influence-Peddling Rings, Part 3 Of 3".

Again, the Americans have no answer to huge Chinese plans:  "A New Pipeline Could Undo America’s Influence In Asia" (Watkins). I always find it curious that the only proper MAGA American response is always so obvious, and you might think that one day everybody would wake up and the Americans have started to act sanely.  Yet when we see the parade of 'experts' paraded by Shifty, we can see that there is literally no hope, as these people are so consistently misguided and stupid that they are literally incapable of making a sane decision on anything.

"Syria watchdog accused of making misleading edits in report on chemical weapons attack" (Norman).

"The road toward Greater Eurasia" (Escobar).  All those 'stans are going to stand with Russia.

"Trump in Wonderland: Off With His Head?" (Sieff):
". . . all ambassadors explicitly serve at the pleasure of the president and Trump should have fired Jovanovich as soon as he took office. She had been appointed by his predecessor Barack Obama, with the blessing of his own foreign policy guru, Polish-American and Russia-hating former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski to implement a policy that Trump was explicitly elected to abandon – reckless, potentially highly dangerous unconditional US support for the unstable coup government in Kiev."
The stark evil/stupidity of the Cintonistas is impossible to believe:  "Tucker Carlson Brags That He's On Team Russia" (Kuns).  At least the Khazar dislike of Putin is rooted in a combination of traditional Khazar racist attitudes towards Russians, and the realization that Putin is the main opponent to Yinon:  "David Frum Accuses Tucker Carlson of Dual Loyalties to the Moscow-Fox News Axis of White Evil" (Sailer).

In case it is still unclear to anybody what the problem is:  "UK: Chief Rabbi is Out Campaigning Against Labour" (Anglin).

"The Whole Damn System Is Guilty As Hell: Taking Control Of Police" (Zeese/Flowers).  With a suggestion for more effective oversight.

"First Look At Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell And Very Young Girls On 'Pedo Island'" (Durden).

"Legalienate Hails Democratic Coup In Bolivia" (Smith):
"Añez’s democratic legitimacy is beyond dispute, as her voter support soared to nearly two percent in the October elections, while her Democratic Unity Party did even better, claiming a massive 4.24% of the vote. The deposed and disgraced Evo Morales could only garner a meager 47%, just ten percent more than his nearest rival. Fortunately, the Organization of American States cried fraud, so the top vote-getter could properly be declared the loser, an increasingly common electoral standard famously celebrated by the United States in 2000 and 2016, though with a much wider margin this time."
and:
"Many experts object to describing Añez’s ascension to the presidency as a coup, insisting that Morales voluntarily resigned his post. Williams Kaliman, head of the Bolivian Armed Forces when Morales quit, insists that he merely suggested the former president step down, either before or after police finished ransacking his house. Kaliman, a graduate of the United States School of the Americas at Fort Benning, famous for democratic practices like mass torture, rape, and murder, said he had “no idea” how people got the idea that force was involved. “I left the matter entirely up to Morales,” he said, describing the atmosphere in which the decision was made as “completely calm,” except for the unrestrained arson, assault, and looting by democracy-loving police officers."
